Archaeological diving parks to open in Greece

After a joint decision between the Ministries of Culture and Mercantile Marine, Greece has announced the creation of its first two diving parks. Located near Pylos in the southwestern Peloponnese, both will enable visitors the opportunity to explore ancient shipwrecks and underwater archaeology. The first park is located at the islet of Sapientza, where archaeologists discovered the remains of ancient trading vessels dating to the Roman, Byzantine and medieval periods.
